Summit team places third
Traveling to Kamiah Friday and Saturday, and employing a strangling defense, Summit Academy’s elementary girls won two close games while losing to eventual champion Grangeville in a heartbreaker by a single point.
In the first game, Summit found itself up against a tall 6th grade team from Orofino, but managed to keep the visitors out of the hoop enough to pull of a spine – tingling 12 to 11 victory. Rachel Wemhoff with 10 and Jamie Chmelik with two were the only local girls able to score, but fifth graders Savannah Prigge, Savanah Kuther, Brandee Seubert, and Rachel Wemhoff, assisted at times by fourth graders Cassidy Stubbers, Tanna Schlader, and Brooke Wemhoff were able to supply the defense and board work necessary to pull off the win.
One game later on Friday, Summit squared off with a much taller all 6th grade team from Grangeville Elementary, and battling throughout several lead changes and ties, the local girls lost a one point advantage with 50 seconds to go to drop a 22 to 21 decision to the tourney champs, who went on to defeat all other teams in the tourney by larger margins.
Scoring was spread out more evenly in this contest, with Wemhoff and Prigge each netting six, Jamie Chmelik – 5, and two each from Nicole Frei, and Savanah Kuther.
In Saturday’s battle for third, the local Patriot ladies managed a hard fought 27 to 20 victory over the Nezperce-Highland entry, with the final margin of victory finally established mostly in the fourth quarter.
Chmelik had the hot hand in this contest, netting 12 mostly on rebound putbacks under the basket, but got help from Brandee Seubert with 7, and four each from Wemhoff and Prigge.
The same weekend, Scot Schlader took a mixed team to Timberline to participate in a tourney there, the local boys dropping two games on Friday by scores of 42 to 30 to eventual champion Kamiah 6th, and 50 to 32 to runner-up Timberline. Saturday’s games ended more favorably for the local squad, as they defeated Nezperce and Orofino squads by scores of 29 to 26 and 44 to 40.
Scoring over the four games for the local team which added Marcus Higgins to the squad Friday, and two boys from Timberline on Saturday were: Beau Schlader – 36, David Johnson – 71, Austin Chmelik – 14, Danny Wemhoff – 5. Marcus Higgins, playing with the team on Friday scored six points, while the two boys from Timberline who helped out on Saturday were good for a total of 2. Justin Dempsey also played the two days, but was unable to connect on any hoops.
All boys played well on defense, and were happy with their two wins. Schlader and Johnson were selected to the tourney all-star squad at the end of the tourney.
